This is a boring photo to everyone except Husband and I. This is the view out of one of our kitchen windows. At the AGM of our Parish Council I asked whether or not fly posting was illegal - they agreed that it was. It was suggested that if we thought the posters were an eyesore we could take them down and place them on another pole instead! This telegraph pole and a large number of others in our village are very often plastered with notices about village matters and they are not taken down after the event by the people who put them up in the first place! In our village there are suitable places for posters such as the Parish Council notice board and the village shop. We also receive a very good village newsletter which is the ideal place to advertise forthcoming events.
Yesterday a rash of three posters appeared on this pole and had obviously spread like a bad case of chicken pox to many other telegraph poles. I took the posters down and Supatrike took me around the village as I looked for a suitable alternative place to pin the posters up so that they could germinate. I could not find another pole which had not already caught the infection!
